Violet and Victor Write the Most Fabulous Fairy Tale

Violet and Victor Write the Most Fabulous Fairy TaleWritten by Alice Kuipers, Illustrated by Bethanie Murguia

Can imagination and logic work together? More importantly, can siblings work as a team? Violet and Victor are twins. Violet likes fairy tales. Victor prefers facts. Violet starts to tell a fabulous fairy tale but Victor keeps interrupting with his reality. Why write about pretend creatures such as unicorns when there are real amazing animals like quokkas from Australia? Once they cooperate, they create a truly “fabulous fairy tale.” The story alone is wonderful, but the illustrations are just as incredible. How often do we get a picture book where the artist has used papier-mâché, cut-paper sculptures, twine, photography, and more? Fantastic!
